Q: And how about your college teammate Luke Walton? Richard Jefferson: The luckiest man alive? Oh, yeah, Luke. No, man [laughing], good for Luke. People look at it like, ‘Oh, he’s this, he’s that, he’s so lucky.’ I’m like, ‘Yes, he is lucky, but part of luck is preparing yourself and being a good person.’ When you look at his situation, the Lakers wanted him to come, because he took a year off [from playing] and he had been working with their D-League staff. Phil Jackson wanted him to come and help with Derek Fisher. And obviously there’s his relationship with Steve [Kerr]. So it was like, this dude took a year off and had the Lakers, the Knicks and Golden State calling him. So that just shows pretty much his character, how people respected his basketball mind and his knowledge of the game. So, as much as he is lucky, he was able to look at the situations and pick the best one and it excelled and now he is the interim head coach for the Golden State Warriors. Jesus. I told him he’s going to have to hire me.
“His versatility makes it interesting,” Fisher said. “Not just Horace Grant or Pau Gasol, but you could go to Robert Horry when he was next to Shaquille O’Neal, and next to guys in the post, and his ability to stretch the floor from the corners, and the above the break threes. And then, in some ways, maybe (Porzingis) is not as versatile a ballhandler as Lamar Odom, but still the ability to stretch the floor, make some plays above the free throw line extended. I think that’s what intrigued us about him a lot, at both ends of the floor, really — his ability to change shots, block shots, and just be another big body we can have out there defensively.”

Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson said Friday that he has no problem with what Barnes did because he would have done the same thing. “You don’t want nobody that’s been around you’’ dating your former girlfriend or wife, Gibson told Power 105.1 radio. “You crossing the line’’ by dating them. Asked what he would do if he was in a similar situation, he said, “I’m doing it, too,’’ referring to the attack.

But there is a bigger picture, even if it is one of perception. The head coach of an N.B.A. team is largely responsible for establishing and enforcing standards for player accountability, and now there are questions about what Fisher may have been up to when he left the team over the weekend to see his children, who live in Los Angeles, only to have the incident with Barnes occur at Govan’s home.

Fisher is free to date whomever he chooses, but rest assured there was widespread cringing inside N.B.A. headquarters when it was learned that he has been seeing the estranged wife of a current player, a former Los Angeles Lakers teammate. Shifting though it may be, there is a social line that authority figures should think about at least twice before crossing.
